Format: Hardcover
If you think of chairs as sculptures that you can sit on in space, practical masterpieces of art for your home, you're going to love this book. Chairs never looked better or sexier. There a big color photo devoted to the important chair styles through history with a page of text on each one. I'd like to frame some of the pages of the chairs from this book and do a salon wall of interesting chairs for art work for my home. The pictures are gorgeous.

I love all of Judith Miller's other books on interior design history, and was particularly enchanted by this book. If you're a chair-lover as most of us who love interior design can't help but be, you will fall in love with this book of 400 photos of chairs. It's a great book to have on the coffee table for you and guests to enjoy as chairs are sublimely fascinating. As Mies van der Rohe said about chairs: "A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous."

This book is probably more appropriate for a coffee table than the scholarly discourse that I was expecting. Judith Miller has written other volumes that are true reference books. I am not convinced of Judith's selection of chairs illustrated in this work.
